She won numerous literary awards, traveled and taught widely in the United States, and lived in London.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"An ebullient tall tale… spellbinding… entrancing."
Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Loud, bawdy, and unabashedly sentimental … a wonderfully vital creation."
—The New York Times

"Night at the Circus is good, clean fun—well, good fun anyway. Its raunchy moments are steaming, bizarre, at times unsettling, but there is definitely an appreciation here for love, sentiment, and entertainment."
—Raymond Mungo, San Francisco Chronicle

"A three-ring extravaganza … Carter's brand of fanciful and sometimes kinky feminism has never been more thoroughly or entertainingly on display."
Time
